Sump Question

Hello Everyone!

was wondering what is the best way to connect two 10g tank for my sump? I could only use 10g because the width of my stand is 10.5".

would it be easier just to raise the first tank slightly and create siphon to the next tank? Or drill two bulkheads?

Sorry for the delay. You will need to use your imagination on this one since i only have one 10G tank now.

I would drill bulk heads and leave them at the same height. I think there would be less of a chance of a big failure that way. Plus if there is a power outage all the water will go to the lower tank. You can put 2 - 2-3" bulk heads and that should be enough water flow I would think.
